MIDAS stands for "Maine Information Display Analys System" and a unique MIDAS string identifier is assigned to all of Maine's inland water.

Every time I try to find this metadata I end up spending way too much time, so I am making this available mostly to help me keep my sanity, but it may help others as well.
